Great Experience. Having zero experience our guide taught us very well how to control the horses. The ride was amazing, definitely didn't expect to ride down the beach at such high speeds but absolutely loved it. Would do it again and again but will warn you, if you haven't done it before expect to be sore the next day haha

For most of us in the group, this was our first time on a horse. Jawad was really lovely, spoke excellent French and English, and gave us guidance along the way

Staying in the Medina it was a good idea to get out and explore... We were recommended Equi Evasion by several people who live in Essouirra and especially from the cookery school Alice, so here goes. Wow what a fantastic 2 hours of riding through sand dunes across rivers and down to the amazing sea. The horses were all well... More

I have been on honeymoon near Essaouira with my husband for two weeks. I went to Equi Evasion everyday to ride for two hours. I absolutely loved it. The horses are very well trained and respond well to the guides voice commands (and yours if you learn them which is easy) and are responsive in general. Very willing to canter/gallop.... More

We are both novice horse riders but wanted to experience a ride along the beach. The guide was very patient, horses beautiful, looked well kept and clean. By the end of the 2 hr trek I was very pleased we chose to do it and have some beautiful photos taken by our guide, to help the memories.

Riding by the beach with Arab horses is an experience not to miss. Probably horses are more fun than camels. We enjoyed the views and the galop.

The start is quite dirty - lots of rubbish form the beach. The beach bit is OK. The ponies are alright but not exceptional and their equipment is quite well worn and dirty. The animals seemed in good condition and reacted to commands so were quite fun to ride.

Thanks for your feedback, we are really sorry that your experience didn’t match up to our normal standards. For the rubbish you are right, there was an issue this year we notified the local authority and they have conducted a big beach clean up which is great. For the equipment in the high season we try and clean the equipment every evening, but will ensure in future we keep a...
